Not One of the Best Places
An annual list of the top places to live in Canada has been released.
MoneySense magazine ranked 415 communities and the Okanagan didn't fare well. Vernon sits at number 370.
Kelowna's in 250th spot, while Penticton was 383rd.
Despite getting highly ranked in categories like weather and ammenities, the region's lack of affordability is what pushed down its rankings.
The top ranked place to live was Oakville, Ontario - it's a town of 200,000 that's roughly 40 minutes outside metro Toronto.
BC wasn't even represented in the Top 10 - Fort St. John was the first to hit the list at number 15.
Whistler came in at number 20, while Vancouver made the list at 83.
